in medicare, cut investments in education that are important for our kids, all, by the way, all while protecting the tax breaks and loopholes for folks at the high end of the income scale. >> you know, my question for ryan would be, and of course to you, the republicans aren't going to go along with these kinds of cuts in defense. i mean, i think the democrats would certainly pare back on defense spending. but the republicans -- so isn't this somewhat of a phantom budget that he is trying to throw out right now? >> well, that's exactly right. look, republicans have said for the last couple of months that the across-the-board cuts to defense spending are reckless. and democrats have said the way they do it and the arbitrary way doesn't make sense. and the cut cans across the board to nondefense spending like nih and air traffic control and all of that, that doesn't make sense. now all of the sudden within the republican caucus, the tea party wing has gotten them to reverse their position. now the cuts they said were reckless, no problem, we're going to make that happen, even though the

. we've got to deal with education. we have to deal with deficit reduction. we are not going to be able to do what the american people want if we have to get 60 votes. and as a result of that agreement, we're going to continue to have to get 60 votes. and that's why i voted against it. >> isn't mr. mcconnell showing it's going to be the same attitude? he beat the liberals. >> no, i think it will. look, here is what has happened. historically, there was a gentleman's agreement in the senate, and that is that you will not use the filibuster requiring 60 votes unless it was something really you felt very passionately about. when lyndon johnson was majority leader, he had to use cloture on one occasion. since obama has been president, reid has had to use it hundreds of times. in other words, the republicans have changed the rules. any significant piece of legislation now requires 60 votes. you can't govern effectively under those conditions. what we should have said, if you want to oppose something, go to the floor. talk and talk and talk. but when you're finished, it's going to be 51 votes
